PR professional who also raps occasionally

 

Hey. I'm Matt kelly. Here's a third-person bio I already had written for my linkedin profile.

 

Matt Kelly has spent nearly 10 years in digital communications, working with top brands to improve their reputation and advance business objectives. He’s a senior digital strategist at Golin’s corporate headquarters in Chicago.

He wrote his thesis, “Fortune 500 Foray: How the Nation’s Largest Insurer Leverages Social Media,” while starting State Farm’s first social media team. He has since been a presenter at the International Public Relations Research Conference, and events from IABC, WOMMA and PRSA. He has also served as faculty for the Arthur W. Page Society.

His professional passions are bridging the gap between social and traditional media, delivering on-brand, creative ideas, building influencer relationships, formulating paid social media, and providing innovative counsel for business-to-business.

In his personal time, he’s a graduate of the improvisation and writing programs at Second City in Chicago, amateur hip-hop artist, cat dad to Biggie, Busta, and Marshall, and a guy who’s training for the Olympic Bobsled Combine.
